Shows like For All Mankind: Hard Science Fiction

What makes science fiction "hard" is a respect for logic and adherence to the known laws of physics, versus "soft" science fiction which assumes we can innovate around any limitation (often including holes in a plot). Hardness is pretty subjective (just check out the debates on Reddit), but this list includes series that are generally seen to qualify.

Shows like Lost: Survivors Band Together

Whether they are trapped on an island, in a small spacecraft, under a dome, or just the last remnants of the human race, these small groups must maintain a good working relationship to survive.

Shows like The Mandalorian: Resistance is Not Futile

Whether the enemy be oppressive government or alien invaders, the resistance is armed with that most dangerous of mankind's weapons: Hope. Oh, also guns. Those help too.

Shows like Firefly: Best of Fox Sci Fi

Viewers love Fox for taking risks on great shows, but hate the network for cancelling too soon, a fate that has befallen several great Sci Fi shows. Okay, we're still bitter bout Firefly.

Shows like Falling Skies: When Aliens Invade TV

After they got tired of anal probing night-fishermen, the extraterrestrials in this list decided to invade earth; a trickier proposition, but probably less depressing on the day in day out.
